Then let’s not even begin to talk about Mr. Swanö… Obviously, we are moving forward in a faster pace than expected. And when I say that I mean Dan just informed me he’s mixed the last 3 songs now for me to go thru and make corrections for. Unbelievable. On top of that, let me just add that Dan’s been spending the last bunch of hours working on one specific thing that I haven’t been fully satisfied with up until this point. The bass sound. You know how important the bass is in TPH‘s productions… Well, I am satisfied now. Actually, I am beyond satisfied. Dan’s understood exactly what I have been after and now I got it. It is with a huge smile on my face that I put on the clip of the final bass sound, letting it blast the fuck out of my speakers. Nicely Dan (pun intended), Mr D.
Nicely. Fucken. Done.
Tomorrow I will get the rest of the songs to devour and make changes to. That should take a little while, and after that it’s time for a short break to let our ears rest a bit, and then we move on to the absolute final stage of the process. I’m not going to promise you anything, but if this works out as it is right now – there’s a huge chance you’ll have this album before Christmas. How about that?
Now, if you excuse me, I have some bass clip to play again.
So, the second run for corrections on track 2 is done and there’s but a few, very small, details to fix in this one now – and then it’s completed. The second round of corrections for track 3 is being taken care of as well, and now I am working on the 4th track to see what needs fixing in that one.
As you can see – we are making huge progress every single day now. Stay tuned, more updates will follow.
Mr. Swanö just handed over the first corrections he’s made for the second track and now that one is pretty close to being finished as well. Just a few more things to deal with before moving on to the third one. Or actually, Dan’s already sent over the third one for me to go thru to see what needs to be adjusted. And seriously, it wasn’t much at all at this point. Dan’s definitely understood what I am after and is acting accordingly before I even have the chance to say much. Me and Dan’s been working together for so many years he knows me pretty goddamn well by now. Sure, there were a few things that needed to be fixed in this third one (there’s always these small things to take care of, you can never avoid that), but we usually have two or three sessions with each song to make the alterations needed to make me satisfied – to have these few things for the first session is not common. Good work, Mr. D! Fucken great even. It’s an honor to work with ya, you bastard.
This is how it will go down: we will work our way thru the tracks until we feel they are “done” and then give it a few days of rest where I listen to everything both in my home studio and through a couple of other sound sources (such as iPod and different stereos) to make sure it sounds great everywhere. Then we will do the eventual last fixing of details and after that – “The Cadaverous Retaliation Agenda” is complete! Just as planned, we are wrapping this up late 2012/early 2013. Never have I been involved with such a smooth ending process of a TPH recording. Keep your fingers crossed it continues like this.
You won’t have to wait for too fucken long now. And you will see – it’ll be worth every second of waiting.
I got the first song with my corrections dealt with and it sounds fucken killer to say the least. Now there’s but a couple of more things to fix with it before it’s completed. Insanity. I also got the second track now to go thru and take notes for, but holy shit – this is turning out amazing on all accounts. You just wait.
Updates will follow as soon as I have anything to share with you all. Thanx for the support, Haters.
After telling Mr. Swanö what I thought was missing from the mixes I have gotten so far there are but a few very small details left before it’s perfect. I got the third mix of the first song today and we have been shooting each other e-mails over the last week or so, working closely together to get to the point I am aiming for. And Mr. D’s fucken nailed it! That guy is a wizard and this production will crush, for sure. Now, as mentioned, there’s these 2 minor details that I wanna get right before we can consider ourselves done with the sound for “The Cadaverous Retaliation Agenda”. I am currently waiting for those to fall in place and then we are moving forward big time!
Oh, how glorious it is to see this beast come to life…
